    I discovered this yarn a year ago. It offers excellent yardage for the price. Stitch definition is crisp and clear. I combined it with a sequin carry along thread to make a shawlette in garter stitch with a crochet border and only used two skeins. This is definitely one of my new "go to" yarns.

    I was so disappointed when this yarn arrived. Ocean Mix, Cascade.
    On your site it appeared to be streaked with Aqua and much more subtle colors. What I got was a garish turquoise that is very sharp with streaks of white running through it. I was so looking forward to getting it and when it came it was a super let down.

    Firs time disappointed with your merchandise, or let me say, your depiction of the merchandise.

        I made skirt from this yarn. Patterns depends on number of loops, so if knit big items like sweaters you may end up with little mess :) Good for small projects and decorative parts.

        Cascade paints is just like cascade 220; I wish it was superwash but still has the cascade sturdiness and quality I expected. The color variation is quite pretty and keeps you interested.

        I used the yarn to make a sweater and I hope that with washing it gets softer. The yarn is very pretty but it's not soft at all.

                        Cascade is a first-rate product. I appreciate the fact that I have not run across any knots or flaws in any of the dozens of skeins I have used!

                                      I am making a cardigan out of this yarn. It does not have as nice of a feel in the hand that I prefer. However, it does show good stitch definition. The hand-dyed colors are well done and vivid.
